How do I set up a printer, not on the lists, in Cura 2.1.2

Posted · How do I set up a printer, not on the lists, in Cura 2.1.2

I just downloaded Cura 2.1.2 after just starting to get used to 15.04.5, and I can't find a way to setup custom printer like there was in 15.04.5. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance!

Michael

Hi and welcome,

For the moment it's not as easy as before to add custom printers. The team is first focusing on the Ultimaker printers.

To do what you want you can read this

All the information about the new Cura can be found here

Just a minor change to @DidierKlein's post; We won't add non-um printers. Those are added by other companies / members of the comunity.

First, Thanks for the reply.

Second, I found some info regarding the .json file, and attempted editing one last night, but it doesn't show up in the list to select, after a reboot. I used the dual_extrusion_printer.json as a basefile, and edited it in notepad. Certainly not as easy a layout as is described. Any assistance in making this any easier? I'm more than willing to hack away at this...

I have a 3DPrinterworks Creatorbot 3D Pro SII printer.

Thanks again.

Dual extrusion is far from perfect. It's hardly tested, so I wouldn't recommend using that in your first attemt to add a machine.
